Defense Transitions Drill – Video

This week’s video shows the Defensive Transitions drill.  This drill is a quick power skating drill done on a face-off circle, and is used to develop agility, mobility, and transition power in your skaters.  It’s an especially good drill for defensemen to master.


Teaching Key Points:

  • Use powerful cross-overs after your transitions to cover ice
  • Use one-foot stops on the transitions
  • Practice quick starts from the middle
  • Stay low the entire time
  • Keep the stick in control and in front of the body
  • Run the drill both directions
